Joe Allen Lister

Joe Alen Lister, age 75, of Hatton, Arkansas passed away on Monday, February 3, 2020 at his home. He was born on Thursday, March 2, 1944 to Roy Sr. and Awilda Pearl Medearis Lister in Wichita, Kansas.

Joe was always smiling and enjoying life, no matter what was thrown his way. His optimism and good advice was admired by anyone close to him. He served in the United States Army in Military Intelligence and was very proud to have served his country. Later, Joe restored boats at a marina in Texas, with a lot of fine woodworking. He was a very talented woodworker and was always busy crocheting a new afghan for friends and family. Joe enjoyed his daily coffee and talking with his brother. His family was very important to him, and he always enjoyed life to the fullest at every opportunity. Joe was a loving brother, uncle, and a great friend and will be missed by all who knew him. Joe's favorite saying was "I am going to live to 100 and will go down fighting ( if I can! J )."

He is preceded in death by his parents; and one sister, Jeanie Fowler.

Joe is survived by two brothers and sister in law, Roy and Marilyn Lister of Hatton, and Johnny Lister of Hatton; several nieces and nephews, Pearl and Richard Hexamer of Hatfield, and Roy and Lisa Lister of Hatton; eight great nieces and nephews, and many great-great nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends.
